Unless they had a pre build slot your new delivery date would seem realistic

Hope he doesn't forget about us, as I am awaiting he's critical and full formal review. As might have to change more things on my order depending his review. His advice so far can't be faulted.
Respect to sfax.

Although wouldn't blame him if he disappeared off the radar while honeymoon period with his X3 is on.

Picked her up. She's a beauty!

On iPhone now but promise more detail and pics soon.

So far loving the colour, the alloys xline t silver look awesome IMO, how light the sun roof makes it inside, the dash (pro sat nav) and how it displays graphics and sat nav and music info. No worries with the ride so far other than one pot hole that I didn't see and must have been big! Firm but not at all uncomfortable. Oh, and the arrived home external lights under the door handles!

Taking it out later to experiment.

Joy has finally arrived!

OK, laptop now in possession during dinner. The wife said, "you will stop spending time on that site when we pick up the new car, won't you?". I was like yeah, of course!

Also loving the parking control monitor going green, then yellow as you get close with the radar diagram. Didn't use this on my test drive but already found it useful. And loving the auto hold brake!

Good decision. I think the dash looks stunning. Much better than the one I test drove, which I guess was the standard. Worlds apart.

Apologies on the pics delay, it was dark by the time I drove away. Almost couldn't pick up today (I was offered theirs as a loaner until tomorrow!) because their systems were down and they couldn't print a tax disc. It all got sorted out right at the death. Phew!

congrats!!! was in coopers today but didn't spot it at all...

that being said, spoke to one of the folks as as it turns out, it looks like my build date isn't confirmed at all even though Matt said Jun/Jul with Sept delivery. not a happy bunny, will see what Matt says when he's back from PTO next week.

It was parked outside on the left outside the main entrance at 4pm. They must have moved it out of its hiding place after you both left!

Just been setting up seating position and profiles for each key. All seems to work well so far. Also topped up tank and reset mpg. Mileage feedback to follow!

Had a thrash and play with the steering and not noticed anything peculiar so far. Need more time to provide some better feedback though (obviously!). Also no issues with the ride so far. Firm but comfortable. Also put my foot down at various speeds and was pleasantly surprised by the results.

Cheers (and will do re. pics). I wonder if it will ever get to see 6NR!? I haven't given up hope after seeing the software upgrade menu!
